Screen Inaccuracies: 212th Sideshow clone trooper
Take a good look at the comparison between Sideshow's Utapau Clone trooper, beside the On-screen look of a 501st trooper. (Both helmets, 212th battalion and 501st are supposedly similar)
However judging from the pictures, there is an obvious difference at the frown below the *teeth* of the utapua helmet. Furthermore the microphone tips are not accurate either. I have circled out the errors. and you can compare the below picture to the screen reference picture.
It obviously appears that the error was that the whole section below the *teeth* of the helmet was made too angular and trianglized ( downwards) instead of a smooth transisioned bump/hump.
It is pretty evident that in terms of screen accuracy, Sideshow continually fails to deliver, as opposed to medicom. However, i must say that price still somewhat determines much of consumer's choice.
